    I am very sorry to say, but it looks like an adult bed bug. Have you checked under the mattress and box spring? Do you have any bites?

    Hi,

    Roach not bedbug, the antennae immediately gave the game away.

    Hope that helps.

    Obviously not a bed bug, but as David noted it is a cockroach. It's a nymph. Body structure, antennal structure plus 2 cerci at end give it away.
